“The Young and the Restless,” “The Mind of a Chef,” “Judge Judy,” Ellen DeGeneres and the digital series “The Bay the Series” were among the winners at Friday night’s Daytime Emmy Awards Creative Arts gala, a marathon show that handed out Emmys in dozens of categories for daytime television.

PBS led all networks with 15 awards, followed by CBS with 11 and Netflix with seven.

More awards, including those in the top daytime program categories, will be presented on Sunday at the main Daytime Emmys show.

Like the Daytime Emmys, the Creative Arts show was held at the Westin Bonaventure in downtown Los Angeles, but was not televised.

“The Bay the Series” won the award as the best digital daytime series, and its stars Mary Beth Evans and Kristos Andrews won for actress and actor in a digital drama series.

Other program winners included “Judge Judy” for legal/courtroom program, “Patricia Heaton Parties” for culinary program, “Jack Hanna’s Into the Wild” for travel and adventure program and “This Old House” for lifestyle program.

“The Young and the Restless” and the PBS series “The Mind of a Chef” were the single biggest winner, with five Emmys each.

Children’s program winners included PBS’s “Sesame Street” (Outstanding Pre-School Children’s Series), Amazon’s “Tumble Leaf” (Outstanding Pre-School Children’s Animated Program) and “Niko and the Sword of Light” (Children’s Animated Program), Nickelodeon’s “Peter Rabbit” (Special Class Animated Program) and the syndicated “Sea Rescue” (Outstanding Children’s Series).

In the drama series categories, multiple Emmys were won by “The Young and the Restless,” “General Hospital” and “The Bold and the Beautiful.”

“The Ellen DeGeneres Show” won a pair of awards, one for a promotional announcement and one for interactive “enhancement.”

In the category of Outstanding Musical Performance in a Talk Show/Morning Program, a bevy of stars — Adele, Annie Lennox, Bruno Mars with Mark Ronson and Jeff Lynne — lost to Rachel Platten for her performance of “Fight Song” on “Good Morning America.”
